Yeah I think everyone is talking past each other here. It's possible for both the following to be true and fine:

- Hair called Murali based on his own judgement which at the time was the only way to call chucking.
- Hair was proven wrong by subsequent scientific testing

You could make an argument that the entire affair turned out well for everyone: Murali got to keep his records, cricket now had a formal test to deal with chucking, and people are still having online meltdowns about it 30 years later.

Nah what most posters who are butting in now having never participated in these debates before need to understand is this -

- Every thread Murali is brought up sees Burgey and TJB make the same "chucker cheat lololol" comments.
- When people rightly point out the racist and bigoted tropes of these posts, we have SteveNZ Adders and Shady chiming in to say how its all a bit of fun.

round we go again. It's not bullocks, that the system is very easily cheated is common sense and widely accepted by most people in this thread. It's happening right now. Narine has been "bowling" for a decade. You're just refusing to believe anything that might be perceived as not being in 100% support of "MuRaLi pRoVeD"

I've said this 3 times already in this thread. You need to forget ****ing Murali because the second his name comes up your minds all clamp shut and thoughtful discussion flies out the window
Read my post on that club cricketers chucking discussion and talk to me again. Of course, its nice of you lecture someone to forget Murali. Try it yourself first, champ.

jfc you're still going

also I never said a thing about Murali being a chucker here. I was talking about chuckers in other cricket, now. I didn't comment on anything to do with Murali until assertions were made that the testing is foolproof, which is evidently wrong. You have to stop with these obsessive personal attacks

I'm still impressed that my point on stopping the hypocritical posting is still being ignored, despite it being quoted and bolded. Way to dodge you guys, it's like you want to be dodgeball champions.

One important point is missing.

Emerson called him on a leg break in 1996. Then called again despite scientific evidence in 1999. It is bit rich if some one asks us to believe that Hair was calling him on his own volition. It is far from it.

The best thing is how early in the match it was. They weren't giving him a bowl because their specialists were tired or the game was dead - it was eight overs into an ODI :laugh:
Yeah this is what I couldn’t work out. It’s ****ing insane

I think the comms mentioned they were playing only 2 quicks and 3 spinners. So I guess they needed someone else capable of bowling pace before the fielding restrictions were up

It seriously looks like one of those benefit games where everyone gets a bowl

racism is a scourge and should be decried at every level no matter how casual or banterous it seems to be

but racism, i know it when i see it, and throwing out really obviously rancid bait to rile specific posters up on a cricket forum is totally badfaith trolling (and to the neutral observer very amusing no matter who's doing it) but it isn't racism brother

Explains a lot. :p

Mate, I know you mean well and I am not saying those guys are racist people or anything but if you cant see that their posts on such issues have been nothing but obvious racist tropes (and then the attempts to excuse them as "bait and fun lololol" ) I dunno what to say to you. But my post was laying out the reality, whether you wanna accept it or not.

Mate just stop. There's no racist tropes or anything race-related of any kind. Until you, migara and Xix69 came in and tried to create it.

You probably believe what you're saying but it's not reality
